Bob also developed Contract Indemnity Insurance covering the contracts that actors, producers, directors and screenwriters sign with the studios and protects those individuals in the event of their death or disability or the death or disability of anyone working on their film/television production or in the event of a loss is triggered by a force majeure event.
Bob has recently created Film Tax Incentive Insurance so that filmmakers can protect their budget and insure the tax incentive they expect to earn on their production.
